Fire Arrow is Missing (FAIM) are puzzle hacks where the Fire Arrow has been hidden somewhere in the game. Clues have been left behind leading to its location. It's up to you to solve the clues and get back what is rightfully yours!

Each chapter is independent of the others, so it doesn't matter what order you play them in. Playing one part will not inherently help you solve another.

The following is some general information you are going to want to know about FAIM.

All of the main clues are in the form of the Wooden Square Signs. They are never the Wooden Arrow Signs which appear in some places in the game. These signs are never invisible, but may be hidden inside or between other objects. All of the Square signs that were originally in the game will stay there. However, these signs may have altered messages in order to free up memory for the new signs.

Compasses and Tingle/Dungeon Maps have been removed. This is to prevent the possibility of just getting a map and/or compass and then being able to see the Fire Arrow chest on the minimap.

Going to the Moon is much quicker. When entering the Clock Tower to face off with Skull Kid, it will take you straight to the Moon instead. This means Oath to Order is not required to get there, nor any boss remains. Jimmie felt this was the best option if he wanted to place any clues on the Moon. Additionally, talking to the Child with Majora's Mask on will take you back to South Clock Town.

The ice block leading to the Powder Keg Shop has been removed. This way, I could put clues in west and east Termina without worrying about casual players needing Epona's Song. Additionally, if you need to reach Stone Tower Temple and the Light Arrow, you can do so without needing to burn the curtains in Igos's room. However, you will have to find out how yourself...

Some maps have two versions, such as Southern Swamp and Goron Village. If the clue location does not specify which one has the sign, it can be assumed that the clue will appear in both versions of the map. Otherwise, it will only appear in the one specifically mentioned. For example, a sign might be in Southern Swamp (Cleaned) or Goron Village (Winter)
